Tea Time & Tulips

My mind is on love...

that song keeps going through my head,

"What the World needs now is Love, Sweet Love..."

and isn't that true?

Everyone needs to be loved.

While I thought about such things, I decided to have some tea
and sandwiches.

I was feeling pink today...not quite red yet, as I work my way to
Valentine's Day.

I like the pink flowers on this cup with the yellow background.

My garden roses are not in bloom and the market had no pink roses, so I gave the yellow tulips a home. They've joined me for tea.

They seem happy to be here.

With my tea I enjoyed some cucumber/cream cheese sandwiches and banana bread...and quiet time while my grandson (age 22 mos.) napped.

He is not interested in teacups or tea sandwiches quite yet.

Thank you for joining me for tea!

  1. Hi Charlotte,
    the preparations for Valentines are going well along. The garland is nice, the tea cup beautiful and the tulips add a spring feeling. Your banana bread and sandwiches look yummy.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  2. That is exactly what the world needs now! Beautiful teacup and the yellow tulips are so cheerful! Thank you for sharing this uplifting post with A Return to Loveliness,
    God Bless,

  3. Your post is so true! How much could be mended and saved...including lives...with love! Thanks for your post and for linking with Tuesday Cupps Tea!

  4. Such a lovely post!

    Everything just looks so pretty (and yummy!)

  5. Hi Charlotte,
    I love tulips in any colour. They're so fresh and always bring a touch of springtime to a room.
    I quite agree with you too about the world needing love. "...That's the only thing that there's just too little of!"
    Your cucumber and cream sandwich has me craving one now and that's a pretty teacup.
    Thank you for joining me for tea today and enjoy that little grandbaby of yours. Such a sweet age!


  6. I love the pinks and yellows in your teacup and the additional decor. It's very pretty and springlike. Happy Valentine's Day! Pamela

  7. Oh what a sweet tea setting. Looks like a lovely way to enjoy Valentine's.

  8. Gorgeous tea-cup. That banana bread looks great. Perhaps you will post the recipe. Deb

    Have a blessed week in Jesus..Trish

  11. Oh that is a lovely pink tea cup! The roses are gorgeous on it and it looks like it is a good one to hold in the hand. Your yellow tulips are so pretty and remind me of spring. My daffodils bloomed last week, and have drooped a bit as we had some really cold nights. It is cheery to see them so early.

  12. I find your tea cup very pretty with those beautiful roses.
    And the bright yellow tulips really remind us of Spring and sunshine.
    I'm looking forward to seeing mine already in bloom.
    Thanks for this nice tea.

  13. Flowers always brighten a tea table , especially when sipping from such a pretty cup and saucer... It makes me think of the Spring.... I look forward to sitting in the garden watching the flowers bloom ... now I shall dream about them...Thank you for sharing ...Hugs

  14. Hello Charlotte,
    I love the pretty lemon tea setting with the pink roses on it. The colours are lovely.
    Your banana bread looks of my favourite treats!!!
    God Bless

  16. I think we are all craving spring...the flowers are lovely and that sandwich looks so yummy. Fun blog.
